Yes, we are contending with the Gazprom/Ukraine gas cut-off crisis here in Sofia, Bulgaria. Lots of layering and preparations underway for the possible loss of heat and electricity. Regardless, experiments with recycled silk fabric that I have been cutting and crocheting into rope or 'reins of sorts' makes the home front feel warmer. Today I also sliced open a pomegranate that had been sitting on the kitchen window sill for far too long. Small gestures seem immense here.
